A Spooky Coffin - CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge

My daughter, Isabella, wanted to make a 3D coffin box from the Artiste cartridge today.  We used a new My Reflections paper packet called Moonlight.  At the suggestion of the handbook, I set the size dial to 7.5", and it cut a coffin that turned out exactly that tall when completed.

Did I mention that Artiste comes with a second handbook, that details how to create each and every one of the 3D items on the cartridge?  Pretty cool, huh?

Here are my cut and folded coffin pieces.

Here they are glued, and it couldn't have been easier!

Using shapes and the word Spooky from Artiste, I created these cute embellishments.  The spider web shapes are actually a border that I cut to fit.  I also used some of the new Black Striped Grosgrain ribbon that will be available on August 1st along with the Moonlight paper.  The word "beware" was from a strip at the top of one of my Moonlight papers.

So, it would only be right to fill this little box up with sweet treats for Halloween, but Isabella wanted to create a little surprise under the treats, so we cut out the cute little skeleton and glued it inside the coffin!

Don't forget to shop with me on August 1, 2012 when all of these new must haves are available for sale.
